**Abstract:** In this talk, I will introduce the extra homotopical properties of a (suitably infinitary) algebraic theory that make it suitable for modeling spectral, or otherwise higher, algebra, rather than merely derived forms of ordinary algebra. To illustrate the utility of this viewpoint, I will indicate some of the computational tools that can be constructed and understood from this perspective. Time permitting, I will discuss some applications to chromatic homotopy theory.
